The photo you’ve been waiting for is finally here. That’s right, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ventured out of the Palace, and someone brazenly took a snap of the couple, out for an evening stroll, looking like any normal couple who had just watched Peter Pan Goes Wrong at the Apollo Theatre in London would look. But there’s just something about these two that is so damn good.

Swoon. It’s just like we imagined it would be, what with their matching hats and warm coats. A source told The Sun, “They were clearly not afraid to be seen in public together,” which is a refreshing change of pace. When it comes to privacy-loving famous people dating, they tend to not walk next to one another, or enter a room minutes after the other, but these two were side-by-side, not giving a fig.
What’s better is they weren’t swarmed by security. According to the paper, they were only accompanied by one royal police protection officer.
There’s also some chatter about the two being secretly engaged, though she’s probably not meeting the Queen until it’s official. Whoa. Can you imagine what those photos will be like? Magical. Just saying.
And who knows? Maybe it will be official sooner rather than later. Harry and Meghan got into the Christmas spirit, picking up their very first tree together. And based on our experiences putting up a tree with a loved one, that’s serious business.
According to The Mirror, “they chose their tree fairly quickly” and lined up to pay while waiting for it to be packed. The couple were also given a bunch of mistletoe, which Meghan loved. And then they left.
“Harry walked off with the tree on his left shoulder and was holding Meghan’s hand with his right while she was holding the mistletoe.” OMG, why didn’t anyone get a pic of that? Guess we’ll just have to make due with this. Now excuse us while we lose the day ogling every grainy bit.
